Employment at TPI

The Psychotherapy Institute is hiring! We thank you for your interest. We are an equal opportunity employer committed to diversity in the workplace.

Clinical Director

A leading nonprofit mental health organization based in Berkeley, The Psychotherapy Institute (TPI) is

committed to making depth psychotherapy accessible to everyone by training the next generation of

psychotherapists and offering programs for established clinicians to engage in the latest social

responsibility developments in our field. TPI offers more than just a job: we offer a career with extensive

opportunities for growth and leadership, along with the chance to make a meaningful impact on the field

of psychodynamic therapy.


Who We’re Looking For: We are seeking an experienced clinician who will manage our Post Graduate

Training Program (PGTP) and Community Clinic part-time (approximately 0.75 FTE, or 30 hours/week).

Our ideal candidate will continue to be actively engaged in private practice, allowing their clinical work

to inform their work with students in our program and vice-versa. We seek candidates skilled in

psychodynamic psychotherapy and committed to growth in sociocultural awareness. Candidates must be

licensed clinicians in CA and have a strong ability to collaborate with a range of people, including

psychotherapy professionals, staff therapists, clients, board members, and TPI administrative staff and the

Executive Director. Clinical Directors who thrive at TPI are self-driven, empathetic, and comfortable

working in a nonprofit educational setting. This position will have the opportunity to shape both the

PGTP and the Community Clinic and may grow to assume more responsibilities over time. We seek to

have a staff that reflects the populations we serve and encourage people of color, members of the

LGBTQ+ community, and applicants with multiple intersectional identities to apply.


Position Overview: The Clinical Director’s main job is shepherding 16-18 staff therapists through TPI’s

two-year training program from recruiting and overseeing their training experience to staffing TPI’s

moderate-fee Community Clinic. The Clinical Director oversees the day-to-day operations of the PGTP,

providing both administrative and clinical oversight while ensuring that all policies and procedures are

consistent with the principles of psychodynamic psychotherapy and maintaining an inclusive working

environment. New cohorts begin every September and the director’s responsibilities vary throughout the

training year. This position reports to the Executive Director.
